Astrology uses the positions of the sun, moon, stars and other planetary objects to predict future events in life. The Chinese, Indians, and Mayans developed the most elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations.
The word astrology comes from the early Latin word astrology, deriving from the Greek noun ἀστρολογία, ‘account of the stars’. Astrologia later passed into meaning ‘star-divination’ with Astronomia used for the scientific term Witchcraft Spells
Astrology is based on the movements and relative positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, which are analyzed by their movement through signs of the zodiac (twelve spatial divisions of the ecliptic) and by their aspects (based on geometric angles) relative to one another. Witchcraft Spells
Along with tarot divination, astrology is one of the core studies of Western esotericism, and as such has influenced systems of magical belief not only among Western esotericists and Hermeticists but also belief systems such as Wicca that have borrowed from or been influenced by the esoteric tradition.
